New ACO Book Celebrates 80 Years!

 

80 for 80: Celebrating Eighty Years of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario

 

The ACO is marking its 80th anniversary with the publication of the book, 80 for 80: Celebrating Eighty Years of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario. The handsomely illustrated book profiles eighty among the hundreds of buildings and structures across Ontario that ACO has had a hand in saving since it rescued one building, the Barnum House near Grafton, in 1933.

 

The book portrays the many creative ways that ACO’s branches and volunteers have found to rescue historic places at risk and build the case for heritage preservation in communities across the province.

 

The book will cost $30 and you can pre-order it at www.arconserv.ca. It will be printed and mailed out just in time for the holidays, making it the perfect gift for the history or heritage lover on your list. You can also pre-order it through our branch at ACOStratfordPerth@arconserv.ca
